2011 BMW 3 Series 335d 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 6A)


Wanted to get a luxury sports sedan that makes an attempt at good gas mileage & clean emissions. I got that and lots more in the 335d. Just a fabulous car that gets a ton of attention. Sports pkg is a must-add, it really upgrades the exterior and brings the BMW sport suspension & seats. Agree with the other reviewer that sport seats are comfortable, but take some getting used to. Easily the fastest car I've ever owned, and just a blast to drive. Bound to get a speeding ticket soon, as it just begs you to tromp on the gas and take off. Got 35 MPG @ avg'ing 80 mph in hwy driving. Avg 28 MPG in aggressive city/hwy driving. Car is beautiful & unique. Have seen only one other 335d on road.

Best Features

iDrive system Harmon Kardon Stereo upgrade Navigation system Sport Package styling (and those Sport Package rims!) MPG & CO2 emissions that are cleaner than gas engines Passenger side mirror points to curb when in reverse to assist with parking Keyless entry BMW Assist

Worst Features

Kill the in-dash cup holders although I've come to accept & use them, it wasn't easy! Eliminate two useless gauges on the dash: 1) The analog MPG gauge underneath the tach, and 2) The totally useless average MPH digital readout by the odometer
